Sigma 35mm f/2 DG DN Contemporary Overview

An inherently flexible focal length, the Sony E-mount 35mm f/2 DG DN Contemporary Lens from Sigma is a sleek wide-angle prime pairing a bright design with a portable form factor. The standard wide field of view is useful for a broad array of subject types, including landscape, street, and reportage shooting, and the f/2 maximum aperture excels in challenging lighting and enables greater control over depth of field. In terms of the optical design, three aspherical elements and one SLD element are used to minimize a variety of aberrations and distortion for sharp and accurate rendering. Also, a Super Multi-Layer Coating helps to control ghosting and flare for improved color fidelity and contrast.

In regard to handling and focus, this lens features a stepping motor for quick and quiet AF performance that suits both photo and video applications. As an I Series lens, too, this lens features a manual aperture ring and all-metal barrel constriction for enhanced tactility. Additionally, there is a rounded nine-blade diaphragm for smooth bokeh quality and the lens housing is also weather-sealed to suit working in inclement conditions.

As part of the Contemporary line within Sigma's Global Vision series, this lens is designed to achieve a balance between convenience and performance, and meshes a compact, lightweight build and versatile handling with notable optical attributes.
I Series lens emphasizes a sleek and stylish physical design that is built to the same operational standards of Sigma's Cine lenses, including a mechanical aperture ring, knurled metal components, and various switches and tactile controls for intuitive operation.
Wide-angle 35mm lens is designed for full-frame Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras, however can also be used with APS-C models where it provides a 52.5mm equivalent focal length.
Bright f/2 maximum aperture strikes and ideal balance between speed and size and manages to maintain a compact physical profile while also offering low-light performance and depth of field control.
One Special Low Dispersion (SLD) element markedly reduces chromatic aberrations and color fringing for improved clarity and color accuracy.
Three aspherical elements help to control distortion and spherical aberrations for a high degree of sharpness and accurate rendering.
A Super Multi-Layer Coating has been applied to lens elements in order to minimize lens flare and ghosting and contribute to producing contrast-rich and color-neutral imagery, even in backlit conditions.
Integrated stepping motor realizes smooth and quiet autofocus, which is further complemented by an internal focusing design to promote greater responsiveness.
Manual aperture ring includes an 'A' position for camera-based aperture selection.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a smooth and pleasing bokeh quality.
Brass bayonet affords improved mounting accuracy and rigidity and rubber sealing is incorporated in the mount's design to render it dust- and splash-resistant.
Included LCF58-01M magnetic lens cap attaches directly to the front of the lens and is compatible with the optional CH-11 Lens Cap Holder.

Can autofocus on this lens be turned on and off from the camera body? Thanks.
Asked by: spencer
If the camera you own has the ability to turn the autofocus feature on and off via the camera's menu, then yes, it can be done from either the camera body via the menu or via the AF/MF switch on the lens. When you disable the autofocus either via the camera's menu or directly on the lens, you would enable the fine focus ring function for manual focus usage needs.

Hello: what advantages and disadvantages of this lens, compared to the Sony FE 50mm f / 2.8 Macro Lens ?, thanks in advance
Asked by: Benito
While we have not had a chance to try this lens out, on paper the differences would be the focal length (35mm versus 50mm), the wider aperture (f/2 versus f/2.8), minimum focusing distance (35mm has 10" versus 50mm's 6"), autofocus speed (macro lenses are typically slower).

Which lens is better for every day use and ...

Which lens is better for every day use and different genres (including portraits), this one or 45 2.8?
Asked by: Ksenia
I apologize in advance for the vague answer, but "better" will very much depend on the kind of photographs you make and the kind of compositions you enjoy. Typically, 35mm/40mm are seen as more "traditional" for street photography, but the 45mm might offer you tighter, slightly more intimate perspectives during everyday shooting. Truthfully, there isn't a significant difference between them, and you should be able to enjoy making photographs with either! With regards to portraiture, the longer focal length 45 is typically better due to lesser distortion, but depending on your type of portraiture (environmental portraits versus headshot/corporate portraiture), this will also vary the choice of lens.

What’s the difference between this lens and the Art lens? Does anyone know? Thanks
Asked by: Steve
In addition to the excellent answer provided by B&H, most of Sigma’s Contemporary lenses aren’t weather-sealed, and are constructed less durably than their Art-series lenses. Sigma’s I-Series Contemporary lenses on the other hand have a rubber gasket at the lens mount and are made of metal. So they’re better-constructed than Sigma’s other Contemporary lenses.
